Witten/Herdecke University is largely running a digital summer semester. An appropriate hygiene concept in line with the current safety and hygiene regulations of the federal state of NRW has been implemented. These measures have been designed to ensure your studies run smoothly despite the restrictions that apply. We would like to go back to full on campus teaching as soon as it is safe to do so as the Witten teaching style thrives from small groups of people meeting together for deep discussions and lively exchange. We will keep you updated of any changes on this page.

The virus is mainly transmitted from person to person through contact with respiratory droplets, for example via contaminated hands. It does NOT spread through the air. This is why staying away from sick persons is a very effective and simple measure to protect yourself.
These rules apply to all UW/H staff and students on campus:
For any further queries and information about how to protect yourself, please follow the advice provided at the WHO website and see the Q & A on coronaviruses (COVID-19) site of WHO – in particular the section “What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of disease?”. Alternatively, use the Q & A on COVID-19 site of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
